This new book, "Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis in Rome", consisting of 220 beautifully illustrated pages, gives readers a deep representation of the spiritual mind and heart of Pope Francis. It offers a selection of homilies, letters, and addresses from the day he was elected Pope in 2013. The Pope's texts tell us of his fundamental ideas on Christian pity, social equality, love for the poor, the need to reconnect to Christ's message to the world. As we learn more about Pope Francis directly through his words, we get a deeper insight into the “spiritual values” of our new Holy Father. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected pope on March 13, 2013, at the age of 76. The 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, he is the first Jesuit and the first to take the name Francis. He is also the first non-European leader of the church in more than 1,200 years. This book follows Bergoglio's life and career up to the present day. The contents include the full text of Pope Francis' first encyclical letter on 'Faith'. ('Lumen Fidei', 2013)Über den Autor:
